Current Employee – been working at Walmart Stores part-time for more than 7 years
Pros – Coworkers are generally decent people. I was able to gain the supervisory experience needed to move into other companies. The hours are flexible, especially if you are going to school or are willing to work nights.
Cons – The raises are ridiculous. I was an hourly supervisor with a "exceeds company" performance rating on my evaluation and just got a .40 raise, kind of contradictory. Unless you have an assistant manager whose really into compensating good workers, like I did in my first 2 years, don't expect 1 or 2 dollar raises <which is decent for the retail market nowadays>. When hours were approved I would work full time hours with a part-time position, when hours were cut I would receive down to 15hours a week unless I really pushed for the time. If people in my area wanted to get promoted to management positions, it was recommended by others on the mgt team to leave and really. Makes no sense when you could just be move while still there but that theory is true, at least here.
Advice to Senior Management – Some of the management in these stores moved up from within with no managerial education to back their experience. I know of a few that should look into some ethics, interpersonal skill and communication classes to name a few. Expect to feel more unappreciated the longer you stay with the company. You move up more off of who you know than what you know. Of course, this all depends on the management culture in your particular area.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
